Foundation Comedy Night

On June 4, 2016 Seacoast United's Crossbar Pub at Amesbury Sports Complex, Amesbury, Massachusetts will host their First Comedy Night to benefit Seacoast United Foundation. Cocktail Hour will be from 6:30-7:25 and the show will start at 7:30. The $25 entrance fee will have you enjoying the antics of three local comedians who have all had experiences as soccer coaches and sideline soccer dads. 

Paul Nardizzi wanted to be a professional soccer player, but realized that stand-up comedy required a lot less running. He's become one of the country's top comedians and a prolific author of books including the hilarious Things That Might Annoy ... series, which pokes fun at Yankee fans, Jets fans, Republicans, and Democrats. With a rapid-fire style and sarcastic bent on life, he's made multiple standup appearances on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien as well as on Comedy Central and with Nick DiPaolo and Artie Lange on Direct TV. Known for his sports humor, he also performed on Fox Sports' Best Damn Sports Show Period and the NESN Comedy All-Stars. Winner of the 2001 Boston Comedy Festival, his CD has been played on XM-Sirius Satellite Radio.

Former WBCN Boston Comedy Riot competition winner Jerry Thornton is a long-time Boston comedian known to some as the “third man in” on the weekday afternoon show on Boston sports radio station WEEI, with Dale Arnold and Michael Holley. The multi-talented Thornton built up a following with his hilarious columns for and and now writes for He appeared on HBO in the Emmy Award-winning Red Sox documentary Curse of the Bambino. He’s worked with national headliners Lenny Clarke, Steven Wright and Anthony Clark.

As an old dad with a young daughter, Dave Rattigan has gained new perspective at the cost of sleep, patience and logical thought. That’s just one area the Boston comedian covers in his act, which he’s performed at clubs, theaters, corporate shows, bowling alleys, colleges, coffeehouses, shopping mall food courts, hospitals, a library, and office parks. His CD (Dave Rattigan: Thinks He’s Funny) receives airplay on XM-Sirius satellite radio and other stations and podcasts, and his video clips run on and He’s made three appearances on the syndicated Steve Katsos Show, and is currently working on a television project expected to debut in late 2016.
